Free, The Future Of A Radical Price

I just bought this book last week end, “Free” The future of a radical Price by Chris Anderson. Talking on how a business can offer “free” product/service for their customer, but still can make money and growth!

My self like free thing, I always look for free thing! With extra effort, I do get a lot free thing some time!

Although people said there are “no free lunch” under the world, I only agree half! I guess this philosophy only apply for those so call “Lazy People” who “lazy” to spend extra effort to get the free thing only…

I get to know this book on chinese version, introduce by one of my friend, Chian Ho, a young business man whom I meet during my “1st Step Up” (event organize by Mdec) few month back. He knew this book will be related to my business idea, and after I read on the short description, I was attract by this book

After searching around , I found this book selling at Popular Bookstore at around RM50++ with 20% discount if have member card. After browsing few page, found that this book are written by Chris Anderson, this book should have English version. Again spending some time, found the English version which selling at RM65.90, and only have 10% discount with member card. Without thinking much, I have bought this book.

Since the author are mention on “FREE” I was thinking why don’t the author provide free for this book, either free ebook or free audio book! Walaa… I found that the Chris Anderson’s Blog actually offer free reading for this book, but only for few week and I was late.

He also share on the audio book for free , click here to download it (285MB).

Since I have the book now, and also the audio book, I will read the hard copy and play the audio both at the same time, absorb visual + Audition together 😀 I guess this is a very wonderful study method.

Anyway, I will post my opinion and review for this book soon once I finish chapter by chapter.

    I believe, gmail, hotmail and yahoo mail are the success stories of providing free service but still profitable.

    Looks like an interesting book – I would like to check it out! I definitely see many entrepreneurs nowadays giving away their products for free. It is a great way to build a loyal fanbase.
